We hope to have more info from James on this ascent soon.
In other Pembroke news, Neil Mawson reports on the Marmot Blog that he has headpointed the tough E8 San Simian at Hollow Caves Bay, Pembroke.
Commenting on the route, Neil said:
"I'd looked at it briefly about 5 years ago and thought it was amazing and well protected but really hard, probably F8a and not an easy one!
...Thankfully it went well and I topped out for the 4th ascent. Neil Gresham and Gav Symonds have DWS it after Charlie did it which is totally insane as the route's 25m and it hard all the way to the top!! Good effort guys!"
